About Artist Project

Artist Project brings together 250+ independent artists working across painting, sculpture, photography and more. Here, 15,000 art lovers, collectors and the culturally curious will fill the halls to discover new artists, learn their stories and buy original art directly from the makers. For self-represented and emerging artists, Artist Project is an essential outlet to build an audience and drive revenue to fuel their ongoing art practice. Attended by art industry insiders, gallerists, and curators on the lookout for new talent, it’s also a known space for professional discovery. As a result, alumni have been picked up by established galleries in Toronto, Montréal and beyond. For some artists, this show launches their careers.

For the 2023 show, we’re pleased to offer a limited number of spaces for Artist-Run Centres. To apply for a space, please fill out our 2023 application form. The deadline for applications is March 3, 2023 at 11:59PM. Successful applicants will be contacted the week of March 6.

What Is Included

Artist Project will provide a 5’ x 20’ booth for Artist-Run Centres selected to participate in this year’s show. Booths can be used to share and sell members’ work, and/or fundraising editions. Please note that while there is no cost for the booth, there is a minimum cost of $534 +tax for six lights for the 5’ x 20’ booth. Additional lighting can be purchased should you want more than six lights for your space.

We would love to have you join us and share your work with our audiences this spring.
